PC gamers will be able to purchase Journey through Steam later this year. 

It has been announced that Journey will release on Steam this June. You can check out the Steam page here. The Steam version will contain the original's online co-op, and will have full controller support. The game will support subtitles in 18 different languages. A price for the game was not given, though it may match the Epic Games Store's $14.99 price tag. The Steam page does not give the recommended PC specs for Journey. Those can be seen at the Epic Games Store. You can read a synopsis of the game below (via Steam):

"Explore the ancient, mysterious world of Journey as you soar above ruins and glide across sands to discover its secrets. Play alone or in the company of a fellow traveler and explore its vast world together. Featuring stunning visuals and a Grammy-nominated musical score, Journey delivers a breathtaking experience like no other." 

Journey originally released on the PlayStation 3, but eventually found its way to other platforms, including the PlayStation 4 and PC. The game has become known for its outstanding visuals, and ambient musical score. The game features a very unique multiplayer aspect. As players explore the world of Journey, they will come across other travelers. Gamers cannot directly speak to each other, and will travel together with very little communication, accompanying each other in silence. Players will never know who they traveled with, even if they enjoyed their company through the game. 

Journey's developer, thatgamecompany, are known for creating atmospheric games unlike any other titles that have come out over the years. These games include Flower, a game that has players play as the wind and interact with their environment, and Flow, which has gamers take control of one of five creatures in a deep blue abyss.  

Journey is available now on the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and iOS. The game will be available through Steam on June 11th.
